Eurobond Laminates has launched BIM files for its range of stone wool cored internal and external wall and ceiling composite panels. It includes material colours and COBie datasheet parameters and the designer is supported by a wide range of construction.
The files are available in a number of file formats to help ensure that the majority of BIM users can benefit from using them The new BIM files – which include those for Europanel, Rockspan and Firemaster – are available via the company’s website at www.Eurobond.co.uk or by contacting Eurobond Laminates Technical Service team on 02920 776677.
Tim Ashley, Technical Serves Team Leader said:
“There is no doubt that BIM is rapidly becoming part of the design process and that the technology will change the way in which the construction industry operates in the future. For a long time the various stakeholders in the industry have been working in separate offices and bringing them all together, in front of one set of drawings and data, containing all necessary information, can only be a positive step with regards to meeting targets, whether that is relating to budgets or carbon efficiency.
“Our BIM models will help bring ideas to life enabling architects to be more efficient in the design process and this release of BIM files demonstrates our continued commitment to providing valuable products and tools to architects and customers.”
As part of the government initiative, by 2016 all publicly funded buildings will require fully collaborative level 2, 3D BIM on all projects greater than £5 million in value.
Prototyping the project in BIM will help to improve efficiency as the architect and specifier will be able to identify potential clashes within the design before they get to site. As such, this information can also be passed onto the building’s future owner or maintenance provider, so that all products can be clearly identifiable and highlight when servicing is required.
